Asphalt Shingle Warranties: An Insiders Perspective

Since January of 2011, roofing professionals much like ourselves have been trying to quantify the value of the newly enhanced asphalt shingle warranties. For those of you joining the game late, most all of the asphalt shingle manufacturers enhanced the warranties of their laminated shingles by giving them a "limited lifetime" warranty. What this actually means to the consumer in terms of "value" has since been very hard to quantify.

I have attached a link to an article that does a masterful job of pointing out what consumers are actually getting from the aspalt roofing manufacturers. The article, printed in the June edition of Professional Roofing, brings perspective to this subject and is worth reading prior to choosing a roof covering for any dwelling or structure.
